The Minority Report

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you for all the love and support and that has been showed me over the past few weeks.

Where have you been?

I thought it only right to start my latest blog post this way……. It has been over 6 months since I last had the energy, time, mental capacity or patience to write a blog post.

I travelled to Thailand to live and work for a year and ventured to the US and worked for six months, making some lifelong friends. I experienced my first love, went through major heartbreak when it ended, brought a house and started a career….
